Falcons injury report: Top rookies A.J. Terrell, Marlon Davidson listed

 The team's first two draft picks missed time during Thursday's practice


As the Atlanta Falcons continue preparation for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, the team's first two draft picks missed time during Thursday's practice.

First-round pick A.J. Terrell, arguably the most impressive player throughout training camp, was limited in practice with a hamstring injury. He was listed as a starter on the team's initial depth chart. Second-round pick Marlon Davidson, who missed most of training camp due to a knee injury, was back at practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday, but he was downgraded to a non-participant on Thursday.

Here is the Falcons' full injury report from Thursday:

What it means

The downgrading of both A.J. Terrell and Marlon Davidson is obviously not good news for the Falcons, especially given the nature of their respective injuries. Terrell was out on the practice field at the beginning of practice for Atlanta on Thursday, meaning any injury likely occurred during practice. Davidson was also downgraded after practicing on Wednesday, and he also missed a large amount of time during training camp.

In more positive news, Russell Gage was upgraded after being a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, and Matt Hennessy was a full participant for the second-straight day. There's nothing to worry about with starting center Alex Mack, who was given the day off due to veteran rest.
